In the winter of 2017, LAND studio proudly selected artist Breanne Trammel to showcase her work on The Art Wall, a rotating art space on Public Square. Each quarter, a new local artist is picked to transform our cityscape, enriching it with creativity.

From the Artist

This past spring I silkscreen-printed a small run of posters featuring SILENCE DO-NO-GOOD as a way to update one of Benjamin Franklin’s pen names, Silence Dogood. Benjamin Franklin is a celebrated figure in the print world, but as an educator and publisher myself, it was frustrating (and not at all surprising) to learn that he was a cautious abolitionist. He owned slaves and then released them but never truly publicly opposed or denounced slavery. The text also serves as a clarion call to rise up in the continuous fight for social justice and equality.
